Abstract

While deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism are uncommon after urological surgery, this study is the first to our knowledge to provide a comprehensive comparison of deep venous thrombosis/pulmonary embolism rates across a full spectrum of various urological procedures in American patients. This study should give the reader a better understanding of the exact risk faced by the patient when undergoing common urological procedures.
